    Journal Entry 220

    Alright, didn't get as much information as I would of liked out of that meeting but it was something. It also means that there may not be a way back home if everyone settled and lived their lives here. So Marcus and I paid a visit to the airship captain. We started some negotiations and manged to convince her about the possible profits of starting a trade run between Aeyllin or Ashvale and Hebiry since they've both been cut off since Wolflake's sudden undead isolation. She needs to talk it up with her crew and then we'll see if we can hitch a ride. If not, we'll have to take the long way around through the Wildlake to Brightly route. Or we could go on foot across undead infested Wolflake to Kinild. No, that's not going to happen. In other news, I think Ian is starting to adapt, I saw him holding a conversation with a half-orc girl. No agitation coming from either of them, so that's something.

    I'm more afraid of what might happen after they've crashed. Zombie swarms, skeleton swarms, three civies, crazy extra-planar assassin after the Journalist... The Assassin isn't that smart though, you'd think he'd try to do things smarter than just trying to stab him from invisibility. It's been shown, twice, to not work. Does show more evidence that he's an extra-planar though, due to his single-minded nature. Really, it would be smarter of him to attack at night, going for the weakest first when they're separated than just trying to stab the Journalist in the middle of the group.

    , and renowned for his very creative and accurate anticipation novelsthat still prevail today within the

    modern fantasy

    genre. Dimiskiev produced several pieces of literature that are still hits in Poland and eastern Europe, although his fame is unfortunately quiterestrained to this region. Strangers was written in 1982 and originally published by StroveiskiNovela. Dimiskiev died in a car accident with his wife in 2003, while riding back home to hismodest apartment in Warsow Mirlosva District. He left behind two sons, Andrei and Nicolas.

    He claims to of read a similar story from a polish author from the 80's. He then posted what he claims to be from the book, translated to English. Yet the site it says to go to, is fake or disconnected. No one can find this guy, who wrote the book, it's not in Library of Congress, OR anywhere on the internet.

    It was an expensive ticket, but we're on the way to Ashvale. From there, we can get to Aeyllin. Hopefully Alex is still there and hasn't run off. So we put all of this planning into getting there, what are we going to do once we do? I doubt the University is going to let us live on campus, not for the long term anyways. We've got some a few days to think it through though. Austin and Ian still wake up in cold sweat, terrified from their experience. Max seems to be doing better from it. PTSD is a pretty bad thing. Even I still wake up occasionally thinking I'm back in the barbarian hunt. I'll get back at those fuckers one day. So Avery has got it in her head that she's going to march into the Aeyllin sun church and start making changes now that we're aware of what's going on and she knows we have her back. It will get messy. Fuck, so many ways that can go wrong. I don't know if I should try and convince her out of that plan though. Anyways, I wonder how the Kobolds of New-Chicago are doing?

    We made it to Ashvale without incident for a change. God the place smells from all the leather tanneries and lant processing and whatnot. We are in the process of switching over to another airship that will take us to Aeyllin. We've been on this boat before, crazy shifter captain that wants to be an adventurer but isn't allowed and an insane navigator. We'll leave soon. I'd pop over to the tavern for lunch, but I don't think I could keep my food down in this air. It should be a two day trip. Austin's been asking the airship artificer everything he can about how airships work and then spent some time sketching something on paper I gave him. Maybe he found his calling. An airship that doesn't break down constantly or drop out of the sky like a brick when it does. Marcus in the meantime, has come to a startling realization. He's got an old girlfriend back in Aeyllin and maybe more. Yeah, no sympathy. You reap what you sow, and he's been sowing the fields across the continent.

    God fucking dammit. So we're all out on deck while Marcus is desperately trying to play Muse songs on his guitar when we see a light ahead of us. The navigator adjusts course and the light shifts over too. A few seconds later, we nearly have a midair collision with another airship! Seriously?! There's like one airship per town or less, so they're pretty rare. Only a handful of non merchant companies have one in the world. And we almost have a midair collision with one flying at night. Are we cursed or something? Does this happen often? How is this even possible? Where's the fucking fantasy FAA. Christ.

    Dammit journalist, this is what paranoia is for. How are two ships supposed to keep course that accurately in the wind? Sextants only give you measurements daily. Obviously they sent it to hit you because you keep offing that guy. Why aren't you genre savvy? Also they are on the ship, under the ship, following you behind the horizon, prepared to strike the ship at night with cannons, and subtly controlling your mind.

    We made landing in Aeyllin this morning. Guess who was waiting at the landing pad? A very pregnant elf. How did she know we'd be here today? She didn't, she's been coming here every single day the airship was scheduled to return since we left. Marcus was paler then Mike in winter when he went over to greet her. Oh, he didn't have a choice in the matter either. Avery was giving him her smite look when it looked like he was going to run. He's got a lot of explaining to do. We had to explain what was happening to the others, but they caught on pretty fast. So we did manage to get in the University's dorm. They're on break with most of the students out and doing personal research right now and a big group of offworlders with foreign ideas was just the thing to spread some excitement around. Our three newbies were apprehensive at first, having had their share of experimentation, but we reassured them. Alex was not around, he's out of the city with a group of adventurers who were going to check out rumors of some old dungeon in the east woods. They left a few days ago and should be back tomorrow or the day after. He's apparently become a very skilled sorcerer apprentice. It's occurred to me that it's been a long time since we saw him, will he recognize us right away? We've all changed quite a bit and I bet he has as well.

    So I ran into the master artificer. He's mastered his bicycle design and they're all over the city for those who can afford them. He fixed the traction issue but it's still awkward with the forward peddles and a harsh friction break. Then there's the issue of people having to learn to ride one. Lots of crashes. Bicycle safety gear was invented shortly after by an enterprising merchant. It's more or less leather padding. Anyways, we had a talk about some things. I have been promised payment for my part in this. Once that happens, I'll introduce him to Austin and see what those two can do together. Avery headed off to the sun church, but came back flustered. She went in with all of her righteousness and apparently got laughed out of the building. Better then getting stabbed I guess. Marcus returned. Apparently his girlfriend is crazier or craftier then he thought. They went back to her place and had a nice long comforting talk and then she gave him a ring as proof of her love and devotion. It was a magic ring and he can't take it off. She knows where he is at all times now. The best part is that she bribed the University mages to not interfere and remove it. I wonder what weddings here are like?

    Guys, the woman might be insane, but she can't march for like 3 days in a row while pregnant, nor with a child, I think it would be cool to get right the fuck out of there, pay ludicrous amounts of money to get the ring gone from someone outside the guild, and live free again!
    Until the child is old enough to stay by itself for a few weeks and the mother gets the ability to move around unhindered. But that's like a year or so, if she gives the baby to a relative for a few weeks, or months, or years.
    You know what? Murder or brain-wipe might actually be faster, taking responsibility is a strict no for a bard.

    I went back to the archives with Avery and Mike. We can read better then last time I was here so I don't need an assistant, but I got one anyways to speed things along. I believe that we may have been going about the search all wrong last time and we have a time frame now. So what happened 400 years ago? Well the University is only 200 years old but their archives date back further when there was a Wizarding guild. 400 years ago, this was still an elven city still. It was a time of change. Religion was starting to get organized with the building of the churches where before it was groups of vaguely allied cults, the age of sail was taking off and wizarding went from superstition and pointless ceremony to being more mathematical and scientific in it's application. Were all of these brought about by Terran intervention or only some of them? We didn't find anything specific though, with names or who had their hands in what. We were informed that the old city records are currently in the care of the peace and love church. We'll have to pay them a visit.

    Well, I got paid from the master artificer. Not as much as I was hoping, but good enough I suppose. I introduced Austin and they had a discussion about some things. He was impressed with Austin's aptitude and signed him up for the next Artificing class when the break is over. And then the Rheingraf spymaster suddenly appeared and shoved a knife through my throat. I'm done, that's it. I don't know what happened after that other then I was on the ground and dieing. Then I wake up with Avery pouring everything she had in healing me. The spymaster somehow missed everything important or didn't cut the arteries right or something. So I'm stuck in bed, healed but recovering. I lost a lot of blood. This shit's got to end. So what happened with the spymaster? The artificer disarmed him and Austin started strangling him for everything he's worth and then he vanished. Fuck.

    I got my rest and went out with Avery and Marcus..and Marcus's girlfriend. We paid a visit to the peace and love church. Well, it's a peace and love... for money church. We manage to get into their city archives and start peeling through them circa 400 years ago. We run into a problem; since the city was elven at the time, so were all the documents. Well Marcus's girl can read elven so suddenly she's important to the cause. Well, 400 years ago, a huge group of a hundred or so people showed up, purchased land in the city and started paid construction on the church buildings. There were complaints from the elven builders because the design was extremely unusual to what they were used to building, having buttresses, vaulted ceilings and domes, so it was being overseen by one of the travelers who got things under control and brought in several innovations such as a new kind of crane system that could handle heavier loads, scaffolding and a new kind of mortar. For the longest time, the churches were the tallest buildings in the city. The techniques were adopted and used in further city development to make Aeyllin what it is today. Most of the churches use the same style so this spread around all the major cities at the time. There's more to it then that. As we were taking a break, Marcus's girlfriend pointed out something similar to what we were looking for. A thousand years ago, the elves suddenly moved from the woods and founded Aeyllin, started using the quarrying techniques that they're still using and began making paper. They didn't have regular contact with the rest of the world at the time. If I remember right, that's around the time Wolflake was being founded and when most people believe that the massive bridge that Rosenbridge is sitting on was made. If this means what I think it does.. I have a headache now.

    Alex returned today! He was dirty, bruised and in good spirits. He was with the adventurers he left with and they were successful with their expedition apparently. We all gather up to meet him. It takes him a few minutes and then he notices Mike holding a Nook and suddenly it all clicks in. He runs over and suddenly a group hug initiated. We spent the rest of the day in the tavern getting all caught up. The good, the bad, the losses. So Alex had his own adventure. He left for Aeyllin a little before Avery left for Wolflake, fought bandits with magic he couldn't quite control and managed to make enough money for his airship trip and trailed along with a group of adventurers who were leaving Winterfield during its civil war and made it to Aeyllin, and he's been here since learning to control his wild talent. He had heard of some of our exploits from the university staff and managed to get his own recharge stone out of the master artificer. So, for the first time in over a year, we're all together again, and we're stronger then before. We aren't the lost and scared children anymore. We're Terrans. When the world pushes, we can push back. Avery, put the damned journal down! I haven’t been doing evil things lately.

    Today I learned a very valuable lesson about respecting people's privacy. It is not good manners to look into other people's stuff even if you can. Unless you are a psion. Then it is totally fine, because reading someone's mind doesn't count. Also, Avery, tell Mike and Marcus I say "Hi".

    Panel 6:

    There used to be a channel for Historical Documentaries, mostly about WWII (I remember an early Drew Carey episode where he answered the question 'would you kill Hitler?' with "If I did, there wouldn't be a history channel. On the other hand, I'd be on the history channel as The Man Who Killed Hitler').
    It's ratings plateaued out in the late nineties and they tried to cash in on the Da Vinchi code craze by running 'historical' documentary serials about ridiculous conspiracy theories, aliens, the supernatural, Atlantis, things of that nature. That guy is from 'Ancient Aliens', where they basically look at ancient ruins and decide that some made up 'mystery' can only be explained by aliens.

    Supposed to be Mike and Marcus scaring the crap out of Avery by making loud noises. I always imagined her sneaking in once everyone passed out and reading the journal. I figure the journalist would have bribed the guys to help him catch Avery and scare the crap out of her. Essentially Mike
    (Warlock) would have just been chilling on the ceiling the whole time waiting for her to come in and open the damn book. Marcus (Bard) would have been waiting out of sight until he saw her go in and heard the first bang.

    So I was tested at the University today. They were trying to figure out how to get rid of that tracking spell the Rheingraf spymaster apparently put on me. After 4 hours of having everything imaginable thrown at me, they concluded that there was no tracking spell. Well how the hell does he keep finding me?! Sure, there are several ways he can vanish like that, Teleport or invisibility or the various other variations of the theme. They need more information. Well great. He's already manifested in the middle of the Artificer's office once. God dammit. Anyways, Max has signed up for a wizarding course. He seems to think he has what it takes. Ian on the other hand is checking into fencing. Good for them. Unfortunately for the rest of us, the University break is over tomorrow and everyone who is not a student or staff need to move out to make space. To make matters worse, all the inns are loaded up with people applying. Fuck it, we're moving in with Marcus's girlfriend until we can get a place of our own. It'll only be temporary.

    Marcus's girlfriend, Raina, has a weird house. It's got two small bedrooms, a kitchen/pantry and then one fuckall huge room with no furniture. Well, at least we had plenty of room. Avery got the second bedroom. Marcus stayed with his beloved. Since we're staying with her, we're chipping in and paying for food and cooking. Jason and Avery went out house hunting while I did the shopping and helped with the cooking. I don't trust Mike with the cooking. He might accidentally add infernal energies instead of the salt while preparing the meat or something. Marcus got to clean. Raina seemed bothered at first by the sudden appearance of 7 of her boyfriend's buddies asking to stay over but she's gotten over it and has been quite cheerful. So how long to Elven pregnancies last? 9 months. If it's a half-breed like this one is, who knows. So how exactly do they deliver babies here? Apparently with midwives.

The advisers were sending out calls for help. Since most of the adventurers in town were at the University, we picked it up. It pays well. There has been reports of strange lights and noises and they seem to think it's a cult or a feral race preparing to do something. Avery, Alex and Jason are going with me.

The Gorrillaz song Clint Eastwood where a supposed ephemeral force is actually the source behind all ryme, music, and inspiration, followed by the Guns and Roses cover of Sympathy for the Devil, then God Gave Rock and Roll to You, the original Argent version, not the KISS cover.

    It took half a day to get there. We rented Bikes, it was cheaper then horses and faster then walking. I'm sure we looked ridiculous. So we managed to find this dungeon. Sure enough, I'm picking up minds inside. So we go in cautiously. Jason takes the lead, doing his thing. Bugbears. Holy shit. I've only seen one or two and at a distance. They're feral. There's about 20 or so inside scattered all throughout the place. Jason takes out the front two sentries before they even know what's going on. After that, all hell breaks loose. One that Jason didn't see yells out an alarm. Alex starts throwing around magic like a madman, lightning, fire, color sprays. The bugbears come running with bows and axes, blades and the like. Avery decides that they're evil enough and lights up like a holy beacon and goes in swinging. I'm nearly blinded by what's going on but I do my best at fucking up their archers minds and making them shoot each other. Jason's apparently got no trouble seeing with that ruby eye of his and he gets in there. They pull a retreat and we advance slowly, me pointing out their ambushes, Jason clearing their traps. The whole place smells like wet dog and sulfur.

    After we're done, we start picking through the place. Some coinage, a few pieces of gear that's worth keeping and In the back we find what looks like a big glowing vase sitting on an alter next to some tombs. Avery states that it's evil. Well none of us are going to touch it. We start looking for something we can use as tongs when there's a sudden bang and one of the crates slides open and a fucking Lich walks out. He looks at us, he looks at the massacred bugbears, looks at the vase thing, then looks back to us. We're having a stare down, not a word is said. He then quietly grabs his Vase, steps back and teleports out. Thank god. I didn't want to deal with a fucking Lich and I guess he didn't want to deal with us. Anyways, we made it back to town around nightfall, collected our reward and went back to Raina's place and got some rest.

    Journal Entry 234

    I got called to the University for awhile to assist the Psion instructor with a demonstration. The usual mindrape. Just writing that made me realize how used to this shit I've gotten. So what happens in the off chance I get home and I keep it? If I lose it? I don't think I could go home at this point. Maybe I should do what Marcus is doing and find a nice girl to settle down with. I guess that's what the previous group did. I don't even remember the faces of my old friends and family without having to look back at the old digital photos I have. That's messed up. Anyways, I went house shopping. Nothing yet. I'm sure if Avery wasn't looking over my shoulder, I could force inherit one. You know, on second thought, I don't want to to settle down and live like these people. These peasants. We're better then that, we all are. I don't want to be a king or anything like that but there must be something better than this. Besides, I'm not ready to settle down. There are still debts that need to be settled. For Amanda.

    So I was at the University again checking in on our three students. Austin's doing fine in his Artificing courses, Ian's managed to keep up with his better trained peers in fencing through sheer determination and Max.. Max is doing better then fine. The instructor is apparently worried that his understanding of how wizarding works is spiraling out of control. Why? Max says it's mathematics. I guess it makes sense? The locals have a limited mathematics background while he doesn't. Because of this, he may very well bypass the instructor before the course is over. What's the problem with this? The instructor doesn't believe he'll have the wisdom or experience to throw around what he's capable of throwing around and may cause catastrophe. He's pretty confident that he's under control, but if the guy that's been doing this all his life is worried, I'd stop and listen. Anyways, aside from doing the normal stuff around the house and town, I've started looking into a trip back to Brightly and then seeing what's going on in Winterfield. I feel it's time to go back. I haven't told the others yet, not until I'm sure. It may very well be my end, or all of ours, but I feel it's something that must be done. I'll start poking around the others, seeing their disposition towards this plan. As Avery is reading my journal right now, yes Avery I know you are, I'm sure she'll come and tell me what she thinks.

    Even after that, on their journey he was fucking around with magic he apparently had difficulty controlling. I mean, granted, that's fairly common among sorcerers, and granted he was under some really shitty circumstances, but the point stands.

    Well, after being a wizards guinea pig bitch for so long, perhaps he's simply doing this as a way to cope with trauma/ensure others can't do it to him again/whatever. Also, being able to keep mr Narrator "mindrape you and write about it" Journalist out of your head probably has some appeal.

    A consensus has been reached. Aside from our three students, the rest of us will go, Marcus included, but only after the baby's been born. That could be tomorrow or in a few months. Well, I guess I have time to better plan out this little adventure. In the meantime, Mike is going to write a book for the University archive titled “Earth”, written in English and will contain just about everything, which isn't much, that we know about the situation should a group come some time after us. The way things look from our research, there will most definitely be another group and who knows what they'll introduce to this world. We're certainly not done bringing change. The question still remains, who is doing this? I think I understand the why. With magic and gods, this world doesn't have any problems with stagnating. So someone brings us in to kick the world in the pants and force evolution. Just as we must adapt to this world to survive, so the world must adapt to us I guess? We've pretty much have already made the Wolflake Orcs one of the most powerful militaries in the world, should they manage to take advantage of what we've given them. So will history remember us as bringing in the age of Orcs and gunpowder? Fuck, that reminds me, who was behind giving the Wolflake sun church the materials to build a cannon? We're all here, none of us did. It can't be a natural development can it? Or maybe it was just coincidence? I don't know anymore.

    After thinking it through, I've decided that maybe the Orcs being the only ones to have stirrups isn't the best of ideas. So we are going to give the tech to Aeyllin and through that, it'll spread through the adventurers to other cities and nations at a slower pace and maybe we can make a profit off it on the side. I took Marcus and Jason out with me and we sold the idea to several of the right people. The guard will be putting them to use right away, they loved the idea. Then there is black powder. To be honest, I'm still shaky with the idea of just handing out something like that, but it seems that I already have. So we disclosed the formula with the University master alchemist and made sure he understood how dangerous it was. We don't need him blowing himself up while unlocking the mysteries of it, and I gave him a quick demonstration of it's possibilities with my gun. I have this feeling of dread now that I've unleashed something horrible unto the world. Is this how Alfred Nobel felt when he unleashed dynamite unto the world? Well, I'm no Alfred Nobel. Far from it.

    Perhaps they should do some magictech like Eberron, with the magewrights and all that good stuff. It'd be combination of what they got and what the Terrans introduce. Then it would naturally evolve on it's own.

    considering that they already have wizards with fireballs - then adding gunpowder arguably isn't that big of a gamechanger

    sure, at wolfslake it made a big impact - but its not a cannon. it wont be that effective in a siege, beyond defending - and the orcs didn't seem to have any interest in holding fortresses.

    We had an incident today. The sun church decided that Avery wasn't spending enough time devoting herself to them and showed up at the house to take her back. I wasn't picking up anything resembling good intentions, just self interest and greed. They want her badly because of what she knows, what she is and there is a jealousy of her power? I don't know why there is the jealousy, she's just a Cleric. Anyways, Avery fought back and we had her back, even Raina. The pregnant elf apparently knows a little magic and threw up some distraction spells. When all was said and done, we sent the church priests back with their tails between their legs, but we've just opened ourselves up to their divine reprisal. I'm not sure what they're capable of in this city. So we've set up some fortifications for Raina and have Jason watching the temple for activity. In the meantime, we gathered and watched Strange Days again. We had to explain everything to Marcus's girl and I know she didn't understand even a quarter of it, she was bleeding confusion the entire time. Speaking of her, she's got the weirdest mental signature. Might be a side effect of pregnancy.

    Marcus was in some weird kind of frenzy all day today and blasting fear and panic across the room hard enough that it almost penetrated my passive defenses. He won't talk about it though. Well, whenever he's ready. Maybe the fact that he's going to be a father soon sunk in. Maybe he saw another old girlfriend in town. I don't know. We have Mike watching the church today. He's idly reading the Dune series on the nook and set up in one of the street cafe's near the church. Avery spent most of the day in prayer. I don't know if that's going to help in any way. That left me, Jason and Alex. So we went out and did some sightseeing and hit a few taverns along the way before stopping off at the University. Something was bothering me. When our trio of students were in captivity, some wizard fiend of the Archmage kept taking biological samples from them for some experiments. Why, they're just human like everyone else right? The university is looking into it. They think it has to do with the fact that we're offworlders and thus some people might think we're different because of that. So the same reason Avery was getting harassed in the church. Then again, we have taken extremely well to magic considering we're from a no magic world. Even psionics and sorcery which aren't something that just anyone can do. I don't know what to think and I await their results. Anyways, I think we're going to drag Marcus out to a tavern and get him blitzed, he's been suffering enough lately.

    Alex came running in today shouting. The church was on the move. Sure enough, paladins showed up at our door, 10 of them. We had already left by then. We had moved Raina and Marcus to an inn and snuck around town and seized control of their church and took the remaining clerics and priests hostage. Then, one by one, I erased any knowledge of Avery or us from their minds and sent them on their way. I found out why they're jealous of Avery. It's because the sungod talks to her, and they don't talk to them anymore. They can still wield his power, just without as much force. Anyways, I implanted a small nugget in their minds. Jealousy of the Paladins. We made it out of there before the Paladins returned and made for the inn. We'll see how this plays out.
